IEEE International Conference on Soft Robotics


In view of the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee of 2020 3rd IEEE International Conference on Soft Robotics (RoboSoft), originally planned at Yale University, USA during 6-9 April 2020, has decided to move RoboSoft 2020 to a fully virtual conference. This virtual conference replaces any previously stated plans for a postponed conference. We have opted for a virtual format in which authors submit pre-recorded videos, which will be available to all registered participants. You will be able to view these video presentations and corresponding papers asynchronously.

In moving to a fully virtual conference, we have also decided to refund all conference registration fees. We want to communicate this plan so you may expect your refund, however, we note that it is a complex process and ask for your patience. We will do our best to refund all registrations within two months. If your registration fee is connected to a paper, we will withhold a portion as a publication fee. Therefore, registrations linked to papers will be refunded less the publication fee. The publication fee is yet to be determined in consultation with the IEEE.

The dates for the virtual conference are 15 May - 15 July 2020. The papers/videos will be available for the entire 2 month period.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. Together we have a chance to make RoboSoft 2020 a success despite the difficult situation and this unusual conference format.

Soft robotics is a recent exciting trend of robotics, taking the challenge of using soft materials and deformable structures for building robots, with high potential for impact in science and in applications. Given the young and fast growing area and the lively interdisciplinary community that grew around soft robotics, the RoboSoft international conference aims at presenting recent progresses in this field, for discussing new science, new technologies and new opportunities for applications.

The IEEE International Conference on Soft Robotics is sponsored by the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society.
